Winning and Losing

March 3, 2014

Last night on the Oscars, Ellen talked about celebrating the people that didn’t win. A consolation prize for those that were nominated. In the world of Hollywood, just being nominated is probably a pretty significant prize. I, however, come from a world of receiving a trophy for just showing up. And to that notion, I say enoughs enough. From t-ball […]

Such A Girl

February 27, 2014

I’m such a girl. I need constant appreciation and validation. I’m needy. These are all things I have fought. I wanted to believe that I was “better” than this but I was wrong. Maybe it’s the estrogen, my upbringing, etc. Whatever it is, it makes it hard for men (mainly my husband) who aren’t built that way. I guess it’s […]

My arch nemesis – FOOD!!!

February 26, 2014

I have a confession to make, I am a processed foods junkie. And much like most women, I have done my fair share of dieting over the years. In high school, I did the whole Weight Watchers thing – except I thought that I could fill my 18 points with chocolate chip cookies and Swedish Fish. And it actually worked! […]

Absence makes the heart grow…

February 24, 2014

We are going on the forth consecutive week with Adam traveling for work. The first two weeks I really put my best foot forward. The second week my parents were out of town too so I had to really give it everything I had if we were going to survive. By the time week number three rolled around, I was […]

Haunted Thoughts

February 20, 2014

There’s not a maximum amount of shit that G-d bestows. It’s not like the median amount of shit is two earth shattering disasters and then you are covered. My grandpa lost his whole family – parents, brother and sister, all separately at a very young age. No one up above said that he’d met his quota so no more disasters […]

I failed the test!

February 19, 2014

There was a quiz on Facebook asking “How many kids SHOULD you have?” Too bad I didn’t take the test before procreating… I guess I should be happy it didn’t tell me to go sterilize myself and that it would be to the detriment of a child to be born into my life. The results weren’t three kids in five […]

Finish line

February 13, 2014

I did it!!! I woke up this morning and felt that final burst of energy, much like the extra push you get in a run when you see the finish line. I sprinted to the end and crossed the finish line! The truth is that I now know unequivocally that I am physically capable of taking care of my kids […]

Flying Solo

February 12, 2014

I miss my husband. Period. I want him to come home. End of story. But… Things are going pretty darn well. Of course I just jinxed myself and I’m sure the shit will hit the fan now. As I am about to eat my words, things have been going rather smoothly in his absence. We eat dinner when it naturally […]

Bye Bye Bottles

February 11, 2014

It’s certainly not an umbilical cord providing nutrients, nor is it a boob supplying mother’s milk and it’s not a bottle giving scientifically produced formula. This contraption is a toddler cup, also known as a sippy cup. My baby is graduating. The other day I put my gummy smiling baby down for a nap. After a solid couple hours of […]

Best Behavior

February 10, 2014

I’m led to believe that my kids actually behave when I’m not around. Although, I always have the worry that perhaps the caregiver doesn’t completely want to divulge. It’s just hard to believe that my children could have so many behavioral issues when they are around me and essentially turn into different people once I’m gone. And if that is […]
